Use only a clean soft cloth when cleaning your item. Always wipe in the direction of the grain. If you need to, dampen the cloth with water and then use a dry cloth afterwards. Do not use any other liquid as this will affect the finish. Solvents and alcohol are particularly bad. Clean up any spills immediately. If the wood absorbs liquid, it may crack or even warp.
Your order, being made from natural material is affected by changes in temperature and humidity in your home. Hardwood does not take kindly to excessive dry air. As it loses moisture the wood shrinks, small gaps may appear in places like table tops. This does not affect the strength of your furniture. When the area’s humidity rises, these gaps will disappear as the moisture in the hardwood is regained.
Avoid placing your design next to heating or air conditioning vents, radiators or direct sunlight for prolonged periods. If you have leaves for a table, store them in an environment with similar humidity to your table (i.e. not in the basement). Always use coasters and hot pads for glasses and hot dishes.
Sunlight causes a second undesired effect, it can discolor the finish. So again, try and avoid direct sunlight.
